Take Action: Bunnies Tortured and Killed at Petland

Last week, a disturbing image of a Petland employee from Akron, Ohio surfaced on the web and shocked animal lovers all across the country. Elizabeth Carlisle posted the photo of herself holding two dead, tortured rabbits on her own Facebook profile.

A picture of the incident can be found here. (Warning: it’s very graphic.)

Carlisle bragged that she had drowned the rabbits in the back room of the store and her manager took the photo for her. “[T]he manager took the pic for me. [S]he reminded me that there were people outside as [I] was swearing at them to just hurry up and die but then she was so kind as to take this picture.” Carlisle was on the clock at the time.
